Come and See the Works of God
For the choir director. A Song. A Psalm.
Make a loud shout to God, all the earth; 2
Sing praise for the glory of His name;
Establish His praise as glorious. 3
Say to God, “How fearsome are Your works!
Because of the abundance of Your strength Your enemies will cower before You. 4
All the earth will worship You,
And will sing praises to You;
They will sing praises to Your name.” Selah.
Come and see the works of God,
Who is fearsome in His deeds toward the sons of men. 6
He turned the sea into dry land;
They passed through the river on foot;
There let us be glad in Him! 7
He rules by His might forever;
His eyes keep watch on the nations;
Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
Bless our God, O peoples,
And make the sound of His praise heard, 9
Who establishes us among the living
And does not allow our feet to stumble. 10
For You have tested us, O God;
You have refined us as silver is refined. 11
You brought us into the net;
You established an oppressive burden upon our loins. 12
You made men ride over our heads;
We went through fire and through water,
Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance. 13
I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings;
I shall pay You my vows, 14
Which my lips uttered
And my mouth spoke when I was in distress. 15
I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts,
With the smoke of rams;
I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats. Selah.
Come and hear, all who fear God,
And I will recount what He has done for my soul. 17
I called out to Him with my mouth,
And He was exalted with my tongue. 18
If I see wickedness in my heart,
The Lord will not hear; 19
But certainly God has heard;
He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. 20
Blessed be God,
Who has not turned away my prayer
Nor His lovingkindness from me.
